Love, Laugh, Survive & Thrive Scissors Slide

Launched at the St Charles market in Missouri, USA, in September, this is a limited edition collaboration. Jo Mason from Dinky Dyes Threads has dyed a special silk floss and silk ribbon, Paula Sibbald from Kelmscott Designs designed the 'Pink Snip Scissors' and Janie Hubble designed and made the little scissor slide to recognise those who have survived breast cancer. Part of the proceeds from every sale will be donated to breast cancer research and education.

I'm going to stitch it for Christmas for my friend, Terry, a breast cancer survivor.

Have you planned any special Christmas stitching? If so, I'd love to hear about it.

Thats so pretty and for such a good cause. I look forward to seeing it stitched Felicity.

I'll be stitching something pink very soon - through tears I'm sure. Not sure what, there are so many beautiful pieces.

Christmas stitching - I don't think so but I have another charity quilt to have done late February 09.

Looking forward to seeing your Pink scissor slide!

That scissor piece is darling. I just did the CIBC Run for the Cure this past weekend (yet to blog it) and it was such a moving experience.

These scissors and project are lovely and the cause is great too. Terry will be delighted, for sure.
I haven't planned Xmas stitching yet. I mean as gifts. Except for my sil who asked for a few cross stitched hearts to hang in her tree. I'll post about them soon and ask for advice about finishing. In case you can help, don't hesitate!
I love the Satan quote under your blog's title, and definitely enjoy the quotes of the day too!
Take care,
